2nd Grade Celebrates Veterans Day

Posted in holiday, poetry, and second grade

This week in the Jackson Library, second graders celebrated Veterans Day by interpreting a Cheryl Dyson poem. We discussed the symbolism in the poem, watched a video explaining how different people we meet in the community may be veterans, played a Kahoot game about the poem, and checked out military-themed books. Fun!
